Preview: Argentina v Scotland 2nd Test

Scotland face Argentina at Estadio Padre Ernesto on Saturday as their three-test series against the Pumas continues.

Scotland will be looking to bounce back after losing 26-18 in the 1st test.

What they said:

Dave Cherry said: “It was a messy game, the ball in play time was obviously incredibly low.

“They slowed us down a lot, we want to play at a tempo, we want to play a fast brand of rugby.

“Hopefully we can alter a few things and get that right on Saturday.

“(On Mark Bennett) He’s been amazing. He’s had a real good year this year, he’s back to his best.

“A bit of hardship in not playing for a long time for your country, and fair play to him, he’s stuck at it and he’s come back and he’s been immense this year for Edinburgh and Scotland.

“You think back to when you were younger and every boy dreams of it, and when you hit that stage of playing for your country it’s almost a bit of disbelief that you’ve actually made it.

“But you step onto the pitch and you love every single minute of it, and I’ve said it before, it’s over too quickly.”
